It looks like the Flooger has an aggressive inoperable gut tumour, and we're into the stage of palliative care ... neither the Flooger nor the Wong! know this yet, of course. It could just be a matter of weeks or days now.

Had a scare yesterday, Mater fell forward on her head - but hospital scans & tests all came back clear, so she's recuperating back at the rest home. I hope to get to talk to her this afternoon - I'm at the tail end of a 'flu-like thing, so I'll see how I feel over the weekend before deciding when I'm well enough to visit her.

So we're all going to be resting & trying to recover our reserves this afternoon.

Because I was travelling the other way on the train this morning, I chanced to see a gorgeous stand of Lupinus plants in full flower ... a bit like this:



Our good wishes to you all with your personal roller-coasters ... what challenges are you grappling with? What helps to keep your spirits up?
